.A VERY heartFELT HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ONE AND ALL

Where has January 2017 gone? Good intentions to get onto the BFG blog early in the year disappeared with the month....Christmas and New Year seemed longer this year, and Australia Day passed in a flash. I hope all your breakfasts were good, and that you had a sun-filled and beautiful day which culminated in a big bang, celebrating with family and friends!



TIME TO BE BACK TO MAKING AND CREATING IN 2017
Events are warming up to be interesting politically on the world stage. Lets hope our gentle art will help to create peace in our spaces and places........What delights await our members and blog followers at the first meeting of the year on Friday 3rd February?
